Hello readers, I know it’s been a while I hasn’t updated anything, due to my tight schedule and many blogging activities that involve outside of KL. Ayu, me, Bro Framestone and Halim were off to Segamat for an event cover of Festival Gempita Hulubalang Melayu.

These were the best performance because most of the visitors were waiting for Abang Nasir and Abang Ruhaidi to perform Silat. It was an honoured to watch the powerful performance from them. The performance from Abang Ruhaidi was a jaw drop performance as he was the representative Silat Performance for Malaysia during any international Games.
This Festival was divided into two session that was the Afternoon session and Evening Session. Here is the tentative for Festival Gempita Hulubalang Melayu (afternoon session):
Started with the convoy form the big bikers all the from Kuala Lumpur to the Dataran.
Next, was the Perarakan Pembarisan form the twelve Silat Club this parade was headed by Nasi Bilal Khan, Ruzaidi Abdul Rahman and all Mahaguru (Masters) Silat from all club.
This parade involved all the silat fighters from the Kindagarten student to adults. It was accompanied by the rhythm of drums and it was about 800 meter walked to the Dataran Segamat.
Before the official event started, the ring was officially launched by the Silat Fighters from PESAKA Segamat.
Then, the performance from each Silat club sent their best students to perform the Silat inside the ring. It was exiting to see so many types of Silat based on their movements. I thought that, Silat has only one type that is Silat Gayong. But after saw their performance, this give me an eye opening about Silat.
Here's were some footage that I've recorded during the Silat performance:
Silat Melayu or also known as Malay Silat is one of Malay Martial Arts. It was originally to use to fight or defend themselves from any danger or if they involve in fighting session.
Thus, not only men can learn Silat but women also were given the chance to learn Silat from the Master as this can be the best self defence that can be used to protect themselves.
The afternoon session ends after all performance by the representative from each Silat School ended their performance at 5 pm and will be continued to evening session that started at 8.45 pm.
The evening session will be updated soon.
Stay tune folks.
